Good web traffic following World Dairy Expo

For the week ending October 15, temperatures averaged near normal across eastern Nebraska, but four to eight degrees below normal in the west, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Precipitation of less than an inch was scattered across a majority of the State; however, a few southeastern counties received over an inch of rain. Wet fields continued to slow harvest. Alfalfa fourth cutting was 92 percent complete, ahead of 86 last year.

I checked on the web statistics yesterday for the first 15 days of October. From October 1st through the 15th, there have been 515 individual pages viewed at and That compares to just 410 visitors for the same time period last year. 62 percent of these visitors were new visitors to the site. This is typical after we’ve been to a show and talked to potential customers like at the World Dairy Expo. That being said, the top five states visitors are coming from is Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa.

The 2017 Mid-America Forage Expo is quickly approaching. This year the dates are November 28 & 29th at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds in Mitchell, Nebraska. We will have a full line of forage exhibitors for you to visit with as well as 2 days of forage related speakers and topics to help in your operation. As always, we will feature a Social Hour and Fundraising Auction on Tuesday afternoon.  You can find more information by visiting or by calling 800-743-1649.
